Polka dots

April 11, 2011

I loved this shirt so much that I made another one...

Isabella is becoming quite the little model and happily obliges when I pull out the camera! Snapped here on the way to mother's group in Edinburgh gardens. 

Pattern - Ottobre 1/2010
Fabric - 60 cm of cream with black polka dots from Rathdowne Remnants
Bits and bobs - 5 small black buttons, vyalene for button tab and collar interfacing, elastic for sleeves

  1. It's another sweet shirt and looks adorable on your 'model'!

  2. It's so cute!

    What size is your daughter? I ordered that issue of Ottobre and I think the smallest size for that pattern is too big for my daughter who is 15 months. However your daughter looks like she is about the same size so I may just be confused by European sizing. My daughter was 12mo-18mo in ready to wear and occasionally an 18-24 month top or dress.

  3. Hi Rachel,
    Isabella is 2 years and nine months. I made this shirt in the 91cm size. I think you could probably follow the sizing increments and size it down for your daughter :)

  4. I love it! I wish I had more time to sew my kids clothes. They grow so fast and the older are not wanting to wear my creations as much these days.


Thank you for taking the time to comment - it makes my day☼
